doin' it the PNW way.

we've had a pretty dry winter, if i'm being honest.  so you'd think i wouldn't really complain about the rain in true seattlite fashion... but i'm gonna.  the rain makes me soooo lazy.  i blame the rain for sitting around the house watching movies with my boys instead of being productive.  toy story, thomas & friends & wild kratts movie marathon?  the rain made me do it.  the laundry isn't done because of the rain.  i had to stay curled up in a blanket with my little monkeys because... rain.  true story!

so yesterday, after a couple days of being home-bound, we hit our breaking point.  rain or no rain, we were going outside to play.  i'm so glad we did because if there's one thing i think little boys need to do {especially in the PNW} it's get dirty.  these guys were so stoked to put on their boots & stomp around in the puddles & wade in the flooded lake.

the first picture below is literally elliot's face the moment he realized i was gonna let him walk through the puddles.  kid kills me.

and lastly, i will just say that i'm grateful for my P365 project for sometimes getting me out of the house when i might not want to.  pictures of us sitting around our house don't make for very interesting compositions day after day so i have to admit, the "need" to get out & find something fun to photograph definitely increases my motivation to get outdoors.  it's always good times.

well, it's all fun & games until elliot falls flat on his bum in the lake anyways, which is how this story ends.  {not pictured}.


  1. i can't get over p-ray with his hands in his pockets! he looks so grown up these days :( i just love your photography. i love the mood it sets and i die for your composition and editing skilz. i say it again and again, i wish you can mentor me in photography! i've been in manual for a while now, but i'm still doing it all wrong ;0) have a wonderful weekend! xo

  4. Amazing & Beautiful photos! You have inspired me to take some outdoor pictures of my almost 4 and almost 1 yr old (they are exactly 3 yrs apart) - once the 3 ft of snow melts!

  5. Gosh I so admire that you take your camera with you everywhere. I'm lucky if I take it out for anything anymore other than work. I really really need to break that awful habit!

  6. I just found your blog! Fabulous shots! Puddle jumping is a favorite of my kids (and most kids I'm sure, haha)!
